Take Your Tastebuds on a Culinary Journey
As if 12 innovative, transcendent talks weren’t enough, TEDxPeachtree 2012 also is excited to bring tasty bites and sips to this year’s event courtesy of Frozen Pints Craft Beer Ice Cream and Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters.
The Atlanta-based Frozen Pints crew found inspiration following a party snafu involving some spilt beer in an ice cream maker – combine the finest craft beers and local ingredients to put a whole new spin on a classic frozen treat. They’ll bring their unique flavor profiles and a lot of love for craft beer and ice cream to TEDxPeachtree 2012 with some fantastically fun (and tasty) fare with Frozen Pints tastings.
Since 1986, Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters has been handcrafting the finest coffees from around the globe, and we thought their Certified Organic, Fair Trade Certified and Bird-Friendly, Shade Grown java would be a perfect fit at TEDxPeachtree 2012. These coffee aficionados are bringing their fresh beans and limited edition cups o’ joe to The Buckhead Theatre for a caffeine-fueled pick me up.
Live Podcast Interviews
For the second year, Atlanta Business RadioX will be conducting live radio interviews of attendees and speakers during the breaks to bring you a slice of the conversations that will be taking place at the conference!
We’ll publish the link to the online podcast on the homepage of this web site on the day of the conference.
